This poll is now closed.
This poll is just for fun. I'm getting close to level 25 on PC so I will finally get to play rank. So background info:

-I'm a Gold Border on Xbox
-My SR range is normally between 3000-3200
-I'm a Hanzo main on Xbox but I think I'm transitioning over to support until I become better.
-I'm going to probably main Ana and Zen on PC
-I never played games on Keyboard and Mouse before until I got this game on PC

With that info... where do you think I'll get placed? I definatly am getting better but I'm far away from mastering KB&M. I still press wrong buttons for stuff.
Yes... I'm a Hanzo main

If you're going to dive into comp right away before you get really comfortable with KB&M, then you're probably going to rank way lower.

Once you're comfortable with it, I'd imagine that you would be higher since I keep hearing that people use mics more on PC (even though a mic comes with a PS4/Xbox One), so the communication could be better. And if people don't, at least you can type stuff out.

I made a thread similar to this as I was always curious myself... but I don't have a gaming PC and don't want to go out of my way to get one just for OW... lol. So that's a no-go on my end.
If you make an intelligent post, people tend to ignore it because they only respond to stupid. Don't believe me? Just look at most of the chained replies.

I don't know, but I'd love to see your results!

My PC account is way higher, but my main on PS4 is gold boarder and its MMR is hard stuck in Plat.

That's what I was thinking too. The thing is though is that it can take me months to get use to KB&M like I'm use to a controller. I don't want to wait that long.

What's awesome about PC though is that Quickplay is WAY better. People make 2-2-2 comps more often than not which blew my mind. Also, it's VERY clear that there is NOWHERE NEAR the amount of Smurfs on PC vs Console. I'll go as far and say that PC has 90% less Smurfs vs Console

Around the same. It’s the same game just on a different platform. You don’t lose game sense you just have to adjust to Keyboard and mouse

Yeah I tried pc version like 6 months ago but I couldn't aim because I haven't played a pc fps since Delta Force 2. Back to console I went!

You'll never learn if you give up so early. You just got to grind it out

Basically if your game sense is at Masters/GM level on Console you'll be at about the same on PC once you've adjusted to the controls. Every tactic from Dive, GOATS etc. works exactly the same on both systems the only real difference is that certain characters can be played exponentially better on PC simply because computers will always be better for most shooters (meaning if you main one of those characters you'll probably improve once on PC).

The only habit that I personally would have to wean myself from is not respecting Widowmaker line of sight as much since not that many Widow's on console are on the same level as PC ones (most of the ones that are use Mouse/keyboard anyway).

I agree with respecting LoS thst is such a painful lesson lol.

My right hand gets all tense and stiff with a thumbstick so theoretically I should be better in the end.

I use Kovaaks to practice, it's nice
